Part of a sequential development, says DIG

  • A similar unit was being run at Indore
  • Weapon spares made by others in the guise of tools

    BHOPAL: The five persons arrested here on the midnight of January 10-11 for allegedly running an illegal arms factory were hard-core naxalites carrying rewards. They were running a similar arms manufacturing unit at Indore between 1998 and 2001.

    Stating this at a press conference here on Friday evening, the Bhopal Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Anuradha Shankar, said the arrest would lead to more arrests in other parts of the country as well. "This is a very serious development and a clear pointer that the people's guerrilla army was planning to build a corridor for people's liberation."
